difference between ResMeds ASV Machines
Getting new machine next month, after ASV tritation study. Does anyone know the difference or which machine would be the better option between ResMeds Aircurve 10 CS-A and the Aircurve 10 CS Pacewave?

Thanks,
ApneaGuy

P.S. I want more of that..... Ya that... SLEEP!

Hi apneaguy, welcome to Apnea Board.

I think the AirCurve 10 CS Pacewave is a non-USA model which is similar to the USA model AirCurve 10 ASV. I am not aware of any real difference between these two models, other than intended country of use. (Different countries will require different cellular modem types or frequencies.)

I am not familiar with the AirCurve 10 CS-A model. I would suppose it will function similar to the S9 VPAP ST-A with iVAPS (intelligent Volume-Assured Pressure Support).

Below is a link to the ResMed detailed brochure explaining ST-A iVAPS therapy mode:

http://www.resmed.com/content/dam/resmed...er_eng.pdf

The S9 VPAP ST-A is similar to an ASV machine operating in standard ResMed ASV mode (standard ResMed ASV mode has fixed manually-set EPAP), with the difference being that in ResMed ASV mode when a central apnea starts the Pressure Support will automatically self-adjust as high as needed in order to maintain 90% of the patient's own recent Minute Volume (the total volume of air breathed in one minute) but in ST-A iVAPS mode when a central apnea starts the Pressure Support will automatically self-adjust itself as needed in order to maintain a manually-set target Tidal Volume (the average volume of air breathed in or out, each breath) and a respiration rate of 15 breaths per minute.

In ResMed ST-A iVAPS mode, EPAP is manually-adjusted and does not auto-adjust in order to minimize obstructive events, unlike the ResMed ASVAuto, standard bi-level Auto or AutoSet modes.

Take care,
--- Vaughn
